Beetroot Chutney


Beetroot Chutney



Beetroots are rich in Vitamin C, magnesium, sodium and potassium. More frequently I prepare beetroot poriyal and this beetroot chutney. This chutney can be served as a side dish to Idli and Dosa. It also goes well with Curd Rice.  Please check below for step by step instructions and pictures for preparing South Indian Beetroot Chutney.
